Bas Oudenaarden indicated two days ago that he would work on this. I might have forgotten to select all. I redid an Overpass query this morning that works ok. The network looks better.
See http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/54w

Thanks to all.

I too have the feeling that the data are not quite consistent. I can see several 
isolated railway lines as a result of the query but at least at some points 
their continuation is definitely in the database - not just recently added. 
However, I don't have any clue so far why the query is not working properly.

E.g. here: 13.8520527, -13.5240216
overpass query shows a railway=rail coming from SW and terminating there, the 
database has the complete line
